    Why would this be a tough film to watch?
    I think it will be fascinating

    Obviously, the 80's weren't a great time for Croz, what with his prison sentence and liver transplant. I doubt the doc shies away from many of the gory details of this period.

    I think someone here mentioned that DC sometimes thinks Rogan is out of line about DC vs Gene.
    It was what it was.
    Bill Graham said one night near the end Crosby played a whole Byrds show with his back to the crowd.

    If this released in theaters I plan on arming myself with a fistful of joints dedicated to Croz himself and viewing his life in splendor of his craft.

    From today's Toronto Star:
    David Crosby: Remember My Name (Aug. 2): An affectionate and often funny first-person account by rock legend Crosby, the onetime singer and guitarist for The Byrds and Crosby, Stills and Nash (and also Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young). He candidly admits to being “a difficult cat ... big ego, no brains” in the way he treated his bandmates and the many women whom he loved and left. The honesty is refreshing, but a puzzle remains: how come none of his ex-bandmates will speak to him?

    I think there's a thread on this somewhere in video forum.
    In any case, I am looking forward to this. So many rock people who behaved like absolute spoiled babies wound up dying, many due to drugs.
    And somehow he comes out the other side, still alive. He learned some hard lessons.
    He needs to be on his knees every morning he wakes up, giving thanks.

    I would bet he does, although maybe not on his knees.

    I'm looking forward to this - Croz has lived one giant rollercoaster ride of a life and still here to tell his tale. Not only that, Crosby's currently making some of the best music of his long career and, clearly out of f**ks to give, mighty free with his opinions.

    A must see of course, but it seems a bit to much old man grumpy health stuff. I'd rather it focus on the good times and music than vice versa but lets see how it turns out.

    Kinda goes hand in hand, and he'd probably be the first one to say it. I'm guessing that while Crowe had an idea of the kind of doc he wanted to make, Croz had final say on how he wanted himself presented at this point of his life.

    I kind of lost Cameron Crowe after that Pearl Jam docu. I did like a movie or two after Almost Famous but the PJ thing was a major dissapointment.

    David Crosby is an extremely flawed person, but he has lived an amazing life. He was around during the folk era, helped electrify Dylan, influenced the Beatles, assisted the creation of folk rock, initiated the excess of stadium tours, presaged the crack scourge of the ‘80s, got sober and lived to become an elder statesman of Rock with (in my opinion) one of the greatest third acts in Rock history. Crosby is an American treasure and is amazingly still vital. His output over the past several years is unbelievable. His live show is awesome and he can still sing. I can’t wait to see this film. What a life, and he is still living it to the fullest!

    Not to jinx anyone, but it is truly amazing that in 2019, David Crosby, Brian Wilson, and Keith Richards are still with us.

    I thought he was on friendly speaking terms with McGuinn and Hillman, but they just don't want to play with him.

    I love Croz and his honesty, and it's a wonder he's still in great voice in creative.
    He epitomized the great white hippie to the full, but someone had to do it!
